Sacked Manchester United manager David Moyes has been in Miami this week to take some much needed time off after a disappointing season at the helm of the Red Devils, but sources close to the Scot have claimed that he is not only there for a holiday but to meet with David Beckham for discussions about a lucrative move to Major League Soccer.

It has been well documented this week that Moyes has been in Miami, where he has been spotted sunning himself on the glorious beaches of south Florida. However, CaughtOffside understands that he has been deep in negotiations whilst putting his feet up as he prepares to meet with David Beckham, who is looking to build for his new MLS franchise based in the city.

Moyes has been spotted chatting extensively on his phone and sources close to the former Everton boss have hinted that Beckham’s people have been in touch to set up a meeting between the two whilst he’s in town.

The 51-year-old is thought to be keen to get back into management quickly, but Beckham is hoping to persuade him to wait until next year when his Miami based MLS franchise finally comes to life.

Beckham is keen for the side to take off quickly and make a positive impact on the fledgling league, and is reported to be interested in offering Moyes a lucrative offer to take charge of the club and help establish them as a major force.

Beckham is also said to be a big fan of the Scot, and believes that his knowledge of the game can help the league grow, something that he has always been committed to ever since he first joined the LA Galaxy back in 2005.

Moyes would then spend the next year shadowing coaches and general managers in the league to help him get to grips with how Major League Soccer works, as it has a distinctly different set of rules than that of its European counterpart.

However, the franchise is still in its developmental phase and has yet to be given a date for when it will actually join the league, but Beckham is hoping that it will be given a 2016 birthdate as sides from New York and Orlando are joining in 2015, while a further franchise from Atlanta is set to come into existence in 2017.
